Incomplete Ballots Passed Out at Polling Place

Original post made by Dedicated Voter, Pleasanton Valley, on Jun 3, 2014

Did anyone else only get the first page of the 3 page ballot at your polling place this morning? I made them stop passing our ballots until they made sure all 3 pages were provided to voters. I have reported this to the Alameda Country Registrar of voters. If the same thing happened to you, report it by calling (510) 272-6973.

It should be noted that the polling place workers are volunteers and they were doing the best job they could. It was clear they did not receive proper training and were not being supervised well.

Dear Bolo - This was a real case of issues at the polling place I went to this morning. Seems to me I'm letting people know that there are 3 pages to their ballots and they should make sure they have all 3. I'm making sure their votes count, not telling them not to vote. Please keep your accusations to yourself. Thank you.

Not that we have any reason to doubt anything that Ms. Cholo posts, however perhaps she could enlighten us as to what polling places she called!
